We already knew Kim Zolciak was making a guest appearance on The Real Housewives of Atlanta later this season, but there’s a strong possibility she could be returning on a more permanent basis for Season 10.

In addition to Kim, the producers are said to be trying to get NeNe Leakes back for another season of drama, but would both women really return?

Kim has been starring in her own spin-off of the reality hit. Don’t Be Tardy Season 5 concluded recently, but there’s no word on whether that series will make the cut for another season. 

Ratings are not high for the show, but maybe an appearance on the show that made her a household name could sway Bravo to renew Tardy for another go around.

Kim departed RHOA in Season 5, but she will be appearing at some point in Season 9.

A recent trailer for the second half of the season showed Kim in an explosive feud with with Kenya Moore. 

Is everything as it seems, or is this a classic case of the trailer firing up drama that was never really there to begin with?

Have a look at Kim’s return below…

NeNe appeared in Season 8 of the reality series, but she decided against appearing on the most recent season.

Getting Kim and NeNe back together would definitely be something that would get viewers excited. 

Their friendship was a big part of the earlier seasons. They managed to be in the center of all the drama and would likely cause a lot if they returned to the show together. 

The producers probably don’t want the series going stale like The Real Housewives of Orange County, so clinching the dynamic duo would be pretty much guaranteed to send the ratings through the roof.

Ratings have cooled off in recent years for every show in the franchise, but the Atlanta version still rates considerably higher than the other shows in the franchise. 

There have been many attempts to have Kim and NeNe share the small screen again in the past, but none of them have materialized.

Their busy schedules have been said to have caused the problems in the past. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you probably already know the stories have hit a lull.

Most of them have been done before, so maybe it’s time for some of the originals to return and shake things up.

Would Zolciak and Leakes returning signal the loss of some of the other housewives?

If so, who would you like to depart?
